The term Yoga has connotations of physical exercises and body postures that aim at achieving physical and mental health, a healthy lifestyle, and even beauty. Certainly, these understandings are an integral part of the vast and complex wisdom the ancient teachers of India had known and imparted.

I'm Claudia Carballal.

My goal is to help you understand your mind so you can set yourself free of social conditioning and live a full life without fears and limitations.

I've dedicated more than two decades helping people work through their problems, first as an international attorney, later on as a counselor and life coach with a yogic background. I've learned that what we see as "our life problems" are no more than lessons in this school of life for our growth and continuous evolution.
